- This is a great little CMS, highly recommended. Perch is lightweight, extensible and damn easy.I've been using Perch for years now and highly recommend it. It's the perfect fit for any type of build, big or small. As Nils' stated above, it's also brilliant at retro-fitting existing sites too. Use as much of it or as little as you need – it'll always be fast, secure and easy to use. Support is second to none too.
- We’ve done a bunch of projects using Craft CMS for non-profits from large content websites https://indiabioscience.org to single pagers like http://biglittlebookaward.in. The beauty of Craft CMS is that it does not come with any content / page structure assumptions, and you can hand craft each page or section, while providing a clean & simple admin interface to manage the content. Craft has a license fee, but the they offer help if the project finds it hard to fund it. Just write to them.
Tilda is mostly a joy to use, the huge variety of blocks and the control that the site gives you (almost everything is adjustable) allows you to create pretty much anything without code and the results look fantastic.
Now, I'm not sure how well it's being maintained since some internal links on their homepage are broken (404).
The big problem is that, at $10/month with annual payment and $15/month with monthly payment, it is relatively expensive. I think that most people interested in Tilda would be hobbyist writers or photographers (that's just my personal guess) so 120 $ year just for a side project is quite a lot when there are free options out there.
Tilda does have a free option but many blocks are then locked, you cannot connect your own domain name and you are limited to a single page with 50 blocks in total (so blogs are out of the question on the free tier).
Despite that I spent quite a few hours messing around with Tilda and I really do like what I see. I'd love to recommend it to my friends but know they'd find it too expensive.
I'm inspired by the project, the people who work on it. It is really good, it develops no matter what, сonstantly there is something new, project management very attentively concerns feedback from users.
For me, Tilda has become the main development environment. At first there were some objections, they say, it is necessary to write code in wordpad-like stuff, keep yourself in a sweater with deers, grow a beard... The prototype becomes a mock-up, another man makes a mock-up to become a design, the other makes layout, the programmers are working after and so on and so on..
Guys, it`s 2018 outside!
We do not need to stop the car every 30 km to fill a bucket of water in the radiator, right? Times are changing, so is the format of work on web projects has changed, and this is Tilda Publishing!
